It has now been 6.5 years since the EV3 sets came out. The time between NXT and EV3 was 7 years and the time between RCX and NXT was 8 years. However, the previous cycles were broken up by releases of RCX 2.0 and NXT 2.0, so if you include those the historical refresh cycle is closer to 3-4 years. So looking at historical data, we are either overdue for an EV3 2.0 or nearing the release of the 4th generation Mindstorms.
I was thinking that 2020 might be the year for a new Mindstorms release, based on the historical release cycle and the fact that the EV3 brick is starting to show its age. However, I came across the following link.https://education.lego.com/en-us/support/mindstorms-ev3
It describes the new "LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Classroom" app. Considering EV3 is in the name of the app, it now appears as though EV3 is not going away anytime soon. Granted, they could rename the app, but that may cause confusion.
Does anyone have thought or evidence that might point towards a sooner refresh?
